1978 IBANEZ FA300 L-5 style Fancy Japanese crafted Jazz box Beautiful Flamed Blond new arrival SWEET! IN STOCK|
Just in this is the great Ibanez FA300 series pro jazz box built by master luthiers over 37 years ago. This baby has been well taken care of all these years to the neck is excellent nice and straight and action playability is easy it's low an effortless to run with and a real pleasure as the intonation is excellent as well it stays in tune well with its original star tuners, 1-11/16ths at the nut same as my Gibson, frets are still very good with 90% remaining.
Electronics are spot on as well the Super 70s sing. Fancy archtop inlaied ebony bridge matching it's dark EBONY fingerboard. Fancy classic trapeze bridge, this one has its original pickguard too and it's still very nice I have seen countless high end jazz guitars with the pickguards and the bindings shot and crumbling but this guitar does not have that the bindings are good not cracking a slight aging arround the bindings can be seen on its back but that's nothing of concern. Overall very clean example here and much better than average condition for a 37 year old it's quite remarkable really... Finish is very nice and still shines like glass, previous owner moved the strap button from original placement on its back to a spot on center heel then back to the back location I have filled and touched that spot up brush tip only it looks good now and won't continue to chip it's sealed one again just a tiny brush tip spot. This guitar is the same model I had seen George Benson play at the circle star theater back in the day it was a blond one too George was AMAZING!!!
